Country overview

Brazil's regulatory environment supports the creation of businesses and provides a high level of protection for insolvency. This promotes competition between suppliers which, coupled with a resilient financial sector, helps to attract capital supply for infrastructure projects. The funding capacity of the Brazilian government, together with slow economic growth, indicates potential challenges in publicly funding future major infrastructure projects.

Governance structure

Brazil has three tiers of government operating under a civil law legal system. The Brazilian Constitution sets forth the main guidelines for the infrastructure sector, and indicates which authorities are responsible for each asset. The Federal Government is currently the primary level of government delivering infrastructure, through agencies, state-owned enterprises, and project preparation facilities.

The projects that qualify under the PPI will be treated as national priorities. These projects deal with infrastructure in several areas, such as transportation, energy, oil and gas, privatisation, urban mobility, public lighting, the ESG agenda, environmental licensing, and others. In addition to federal assets, there is in the PPI a specific support area to promote projects in subnational entities.
